“I’m really happy to win the Bank Derby. I think the odds of the playoffs have increased with this victory, but now the patch has changed, so I think I need to adapt well to it so I can settle down safely. If I adapt well, I think I can easily go to the playoffs.
In the case of the ban-pick composition in the third set, it did not come out much during the practice process. However, as the same composition came out in the last LCK game, I thought I should practice, so I practiced. It came out just right. I tried the 1st and 2nd games and the results came out well.
In the case of the 1st set, I didn’t think that the composition would collapse like that at the top. In my opinion, I thought it was not good to pick Jace and then Gnar. So I thought I would win, but I didn’t expect to win easily.
In the case of a good evaluation of the ban/pick, I anticipate what kind of scenario will come out for 3 or 4 hours the day before the tournament with my team’s analyst and coaches. I think the results came out.
I guess I’ll have to do a lot of research on the next patch. If you adapt well, I think you can win against strong teams. I will come back right away, anticipate the next patch, and prepare well.”
